foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second w
it clear that they also have a very different view on foreign policy. when we entered the war in iraq, they said we should have kept 30,000 troops there. they refuse to commit to an end date on the war in afghanistan, and they openly opposed the signing of an arms control treaty with russia that every single former republican secretary of state, secretary of defense, and national security adviser urged be ratified. >> there is vice president joe biden in lynchburg, virginia. let's go ahead and take you to governor mitt romney. he is in kissimmee, florida, here. just taken the stage there. behind him marco rubio. also connie mack. connie mack represents the fourth district here in florida. >> in english and spanish, and thank you for being here. what a welcome! this is fabulous, thank you. [ cheering ] now let me underline something that connie mack just said. he reminded you that early voting began today. that means that today you can go vote. and it helps for you to vote now because the earlier you vote, the more help you can give us getting other people to the polls? because we're g
any basis and fact in terms of foreign policy. >> what do you make of governor romney today picking up on a line that he basically debuted, if you will, right before the storm and the attention went to that crisis, that he is the candidate of change in this race? >> well, i think that that is a very shallow argument, but the last three days, you're going to see enormous amount of messaging. president obama is the candidate of change. he was four years ago. he is now, changing the policies of the past. he's done that in foreign policy. he's doing this with the economy, with his agenda of creating jobs and more teachers and engineering jobs and the middle class out. he's the candidate of change. governor romney is not. but, look, this is a very close race. this is going to go down to the wire. but i feel confident. i see the battleground states moving our way. but i think it's going to be a long night, tamron, a long night on tuesday. >> governor, it's a great pleasure having you on. i know we will see you that night on some of our coverage, i'm sure. thank you, sir. >>> and we are follo
? it is not unusual within the traditions of our country to have the challenger engage. we do that on foreign policy. they get briefings. governor romney has been included and offered to talk to the management infrastructure. if governor romney were to win, there would be briefings before he became president. it was not a political question. i think it was a fair question. i think what we saw was governor christie's desire to show everyone how strongly he is a political, which, as you said, makes him look political. >> having worked for a lot of politicians, i don't think we should always read into everyone's motives. of yisly, there is politics. at the end of the day, chris christie is is aware of it. his number one priority has to be to people of new jersey that he is working on this. having an event with mitt romney would seem very political. i think he had the right response. maybe he was a bit more confrontational than i would be. the substance of this is the right one. the fact that we have politicians reaching across the aisle is something we should separate and start looking at their motives
where there are more mexicans. you're right. this idea of focusing on foreign policy rather than on economic policy, not a good play. you saw mitt romney try to do that early on. he was in texas, for instance, early on in this race, and talking about those issues. but, again, in texas, that's a state he is going to win. have i been quite surprised that you haven't seen mitt romney out on the stump with people like susana martinez. he hasn't been out with brian sandoval. >> you've named those names. and to that point the ad i referred to might appeal to cuban americans in florida. but we know he has to extend his reach to the latino community beyond florida. with that said, i don't know what he would present on the table with immigration, but he has allies that are available to him, successful latinos within his own party that he has not reached out to broaden a message of, i don't know, economic recovery or whatever, the american dream story that susana martinez forever offered up at the rnc. >> yeah, very powerful message. >> absolutely. >> you heard from that governor. and in r
's sort of how he's promising it. and foreign policy i do fear the hawkishness of the line that governor romney's taken. talking about going to war with iran if they even have the capability to build a nuclear weapon. that's preemptive. and i think that's a very dangerous pattern to go down. we did that before with iraq. i don't think preemptive war is anything more than war. >> it's always food. it's always food. i'm obsessed with a place in east elmhurst queens, a french pastry shop. i've gone there the last two weekends, including taking a big subway ride and hiking over there. it's not near a subway. "argo" i loved the movie. go ben aflex. i think he did a great job. i'm going to be seeing "lincoln." obviously love doris kearns goodwin's book. >> we don't know which one of these guys will be marching towards the finish line on november 6th. this is just you go around the country and people, you go to airports, and the dollar bill didn't come with it but it just sort of seems a nice touch. don't you think? >> we'll have more of my conversation today at 12:00 noon. we're going to talk
. >>> not the economy, not foreign policy, not even the unemployment rate, barometric pressure. it's monday october 29th, and this is "now." >>> joining me today msnbc contributor ari melber of the nation, host of msnbc's "the last word with lawrence o'donnell" lawrence owe dodge live on set with us, cocreator of "the daily
co-hosts for not devolving into these crazy connections unlike someone i won't name at foreign policy magazine. a magazine, i love. i'm a subscriber, but the story today, meet sandy, the game changer, first of all dock a point for that trite expression. two, to begin with sandy will do more to draw attention to issues of climate change than all the candidates running for every office in the united states during this election cycle have done. i think that's blowing this a bit out of proportion to think that, a, this is going to bring us to a huge conversation about climate change and that that conversation would then really affect the election on tuesday. just seems silly. i think people are going to keep their eye on the ball here. >> back to that breaking news out of midtown manhattan. this is video just in. the view from the ground of that partial crane collapse. the area around it is being evacuated. it happened at a 90-story building under construction at 57th street near carnegie hall. city officials say there are no plans right now to try to remove the collapsed crane because th
about the exon nous events that might change this. it might be libya, foreign policy crisis. in the end a domestic crisis like this ends up being a better hand for the president to play. campaigns are being conducted on parallel tracks and while the president is sequestered in the white house i'm sure he'll tour the damage at some point. the super pacs are airing their ads and we know there is a war under way between the romney campaign and the obama campaign, specifically on the question of the auto bail outout there has been in swing states trying to tear down -- not tear down but people have questioned the voracity of the romney messaging on the auto bailout as it points to jobs going overseas to china and keep sending jobs to china. i wonder what you make of that. is that super packed messaging enough to try to override the benefit may gain from being put in this elevated position of commander in chief? >> you know, be i was sitting here this morning trying to put myself in the mind of a voter in ohio, swing voter in ohio, and i suspect that for them, the hurricane, the damage and d
, that was the -- >> i am being serious, jared. >> yes -- if you look at the foreign policy debate, that was another example to me, again, of mitt romney saying, i can't figure out what the median voter who's going to ultimately decide this thing wants me to say, so i'm going to be all over the map, i'm just going to agree with the president, whatever. same thing on fema. it was something to privatize, to kick to the states. you hit a natural disaster, and there's an obvious role that we just discussed, an efficient economic role for a centralized government, a role by the federal government and he's speechless, doesn't know what to say. >> indeed. thank you, jonathan and jared, please stay with us. but i would like to bring in mike viqueira, who's reporting for us from the white house. we're watching pictures of president obama accompanied by are chris christie, both of whom are about to make a public statement. and mike, the president not only visiting the region this morning, he's also telephoned hospitals in new york, he visited the red cross, he visited fema as well, right? >> reporter: that's
that the president is doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it and you actually maybe even step aside and i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which is to lay low. a grace period, i guess, and the president is going to be back on the campaign trail. mitt romney didn't even mention the name yesterday. perhaps he learned from his mistake, if you believe that they were a mistake, from the attack in benghazi. >> clearly i think the campaign thought he jumped in far too quickly in benghazi and that was a move they regretted. he was out yesterday in florida campaigning. there were attacks against barack obama's leadership style and reference to fema and the role of government in federal emergencies. but i think this quantifies -- i think it changes the race in the sense that it changes the tone of the race in the last few days and i think the president has managed --
. >> mayor, i want to turn to foreign policy really quickly. president obama did an interview with joe and mika that's going to run tomorrow morning in its entirety on "morning joe." this is what he said about the benghazi attacks. take a listen. >> my attitude on this is if we find out that there was a big breakdown and somebody didn't do their job, they'll be held accountable. ultimately as commander in chief i'm responsible. i don't shy away from that responsibility. my number one responsibility is to go after the folks that did this and make sure we get them. i have a pretty good track record in doing that. >> how much has the benghazi attack become a political liability for the president as we head into election day, mayor? >> what you just heard there was a rational commander in chief doing what needs to be done to lead a country. that's what he's been doing for four years. that's how he focused on bin laden and focused on how we need to do positive things around the globe. i'm a mayor, too. i know the moment that something happens, a crime for instance even in my own town, you d
romney's foreign policy and i think it's spore addic that really matters. i see this as an opportunity for the romney campaign to try to distract from what is a very serious endorcement from general powell. >> let's get to another topic here, karen. an article in the "washington post." it's a new one that argues there is a high likelihood president obama could win the electoral vote but not the popular vote, which would be a first for an incumbent. could we survive the hyperpartisanship that that scenario would likely cause? >> i don't know, alex. i mean, i really hope that doesn't happen for so many reasons. i think it would be terrible for the country for so many reasons. we've already become so partisan. i'm actually have to tell you they was skeptical of some of the modelling that we've seen going on. i think a lot of the polls and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of demo
that the government should use public policy to punish cohabitaters, homosexuals, and foreign cay tors, oh my. he pulled it into republican territory with him. early this year that republican legislature came up with a fertilized egg as person bill. a bill that would ban all abortion and hormonal contraception and invee tro fertilization. the day the bill was passed through a committee, this is what the lobby of the hearing room looked like. the area around was full of protesters. that was a standing-room only type of gig. there were protesters outside as well. they came out with the forced vaginal ultrasound bill, which governor mcdonnell threw his full support behind. hundreds of protesters turned up at the capital on the day the house was supposed to vote to take part in a silent protest. protesters lined the sidewalks as they would have to see them as they walked to work. it was a very powerful, very large protest. they are making their case on two levels. first, there were a lot of people. lots of women, also some men too. and they were all willing to show up and stand there that they were a
